Easter turned out to be a good day for a photo shoot - and some fun sailing. Took Chautauqua out for a spin . . . here are a few pics and the resulting video. Quite gusty and shifty.
Please ignore the crease in the main, which you can see in the video - I didn't notice it until I was on the water, and couldn't be bothered to mess with it.
The stick seen dragging on the starboard side is an alternate fore and aft push-pull tiller, for use when sitting down in the cockpit. I just tossed it to the side to keep it out of the way, not thinking about how it would look on video.
She rows great, btw. Those are 5-1/2' oars, which area bit too short. That's my daughter, Ruth . . . she was very disappointed that she didn't get her own paddle. We did sneak up on a bunch of turtles, which may have made up for it.
Plans available by the end of the month, if all goes well.
